Another great field day with a joint AOS/RNBWS trip to the Somerset Levels on Saturday 5 February which included Shapwick Heath, Greylake, Westhay, Ham Wall and other sites in and around the Avalon Marshes. At least 60 species were seen as a group with the undoubted highlight being the Baikal Teal (a vagrant from Eastern Russia and Asia) at Greylake; a lifer for most of us.
Other notables included Tundra Bean Goose, a drake Ring-necked Duck (a vagrant from North America), Cattle Egret and Great Egret. One lucky observer had a Merlin over at Shapwick.
Not much photography was going on in the group so nothing spectacular to show you.
Thirteen members attended in total, including four from the Royal Navy.Comments
